10.4 uMotif cannot be and is not liable for any damages which result from your failure to continue your healthcare programme, pathway or treatment as directed by your healthcare professionals.

10.5 The App(s) and the Services are provided for data capture purposes only. They do not offer any form of advice or guidance on which you should rely. You must obtain professional or specialist advice before starting any health programme, research project, study or pathway. The information provided through the App(s) and the Service does not constitute medical advice or act as a substitute for medical treatment – the App(s) and the Service provide a tool for tracking the user’s data only.
10.6 You must check that the App(s) and the Services are suitable for you. The App(s) and the Services have not been developed to meet your individual requirements. Please check that the facilities and functions of the App(s) and Services (as described on the Appstore) meet your requirements.
